Yeah, so, people are obsessed with sleeping babies.
There are a million books written about getting your baby to sleep through the night. Everywhere we go, people ask, “How does the baby sleep?” I usually say, “On his back under a pile of clothes I will never get to wear again because of him.”
Seriously, though, people do ask me about his sleep patterns everywhere I go. I went to CUP just down the street and a stranger asked me about the Spawn’s sleep schedule. What they really want to know is if he is sleeping through the night? The answer is sometimes.
Sometimes he sleeps through the night. Sometimes he wakes up at 4 a.m. then again at 7 a.m. Sometimes, if he’s having a bad night, he wakes up at 2 a.m. then 4 a.m. then 7 a.m., but that’s not very often.
When I hear him cry on the baby monitor, I get so annoyed sometimes, because I’m a human being who needs sleep. Argh! Go to sleep, kid. I march across the house, open his bedroom door and then I see him, and I just melt. “Oh hi! It’s you. I missed you.”
Sure, maybe the Spawn hasn’t quite nailed the whole sleeping through the night thing, but he’s pretty awesome at taking a nap. I present to you, dear readers, photographic evidence that Spawn knows how to nap.
I wish I could nap like this kid.
